Hits and Misses with Predictions

These commercials from 1993 are surprisingly accurate, but I got a kick out of the one that shows a guys "sending a fax" from the beach on his tablet.

1993 just doesn't seem like it was that long ago....but yep, we have come a very long way technologically.

Interesting ads.

It's kind of ironic that the company that envisioned those technological developments in those commercials wasn't the one to bring them to market.
